It's all been said before by my fellow reviewers really, it's - funny - lighthearted - great narrator - a must listen. MH gives us the words which enables us to envisage some hilarious scenes.
I got it on sale so I'm one happy listener.
Laney, the engaged Preacher's Daughter, is a good girl from a small town but when things go wrong in her life she is suddenly confronted with a man she once had a teenage crush on. Firefighter/Orchard owner Jake is a beautiful, sexy, hot, bad boy who's an adrenaline junkie, a heart-breaker and lives on the edge as can be seen by his love of all forms of Xtreme pursuits so when Laney steps onto his property he knows he's in for a sweet challenge and a few weeks of fun…. but he wants nothing more.
Laney is fed-up being good and Jake is just the person to awaken her rebellious wild side but she knows what she's risking as they share more time, thoughts and passions together and she's aware that his cocky banter, flirty ways and sexual skills make it impossible for her to pull away but underneath Jake's casual bravado is a heartbreaking story waiting to be told. However, an interfering ex fiancee, a judgemental Father and a snake all have a hand in bringing things to a head with disastrous and devastating consequences.
This well-written enjoyable story captivated me with it's loveable characters who are complete opposites of each other and yet learn to meet in the middle, an emotional plot that's tender, touching, passionate, hot, sad, funny, sexy, romantic and bitter-sweet but at the end you are rewarded with a transformed Hero who'll risk everything for the woman he loves.
Worth a credit? Well it would have been a YES but as it's under $10 I saved my credit for another, more expensive, listen.
Well in this final Colter story I had to bid a sad farewell to the small town of Clyde Colorado but more importantly to all the Colter family members who I love and who's exploits have entertained me as they are an unusual but very loyal family unit. All I can now hope for a Novella which may tie the loose ends up nicely.
This is the story of Max's Sister Lauren, a sweet but mentally scarred woman who has escaped an abusive relationship by bad guy Joel Knight so has disappeared to Clyde Colorado to be with Max and has been warmly welcomed by all the Colter family who now treat her as one of their own. But her sexy tattooed bodyguards Liam and Noah (yes I'm drooling) who were hired by Max but left behind, desperately need to see her because they feel she's hiding something (she is she is) and may be in danger but also because they both have deep feelings for her and, after a heart-to-heart, they make her a very tempting offer (take it girl). But before long the past catches up with her once again which puts everyone she loves in danger and threatens to destroy her newfound happiness.... and the men she's come to love.
A beautifully written story that's got suspense, danger, murder, secrets, love, loyalty, courage, commitment, passion, hot ménage sex, and a loving family who stick together when the going gets tough. There's also great characters and familiar names from previous books who all help to make this an enjoyable and entertaining ending to the Colter family saga.
Worth a credit? MB has entertained, excited and enthralled me in every one of these Colter books so YES very creditworthy and I'm looking forward to seeing what tasty delight she'll serve up next.
What a great surprise this emotional and enjoyable book was as GLM is a new author to me but I thought I'd take a chance and I'm sooo glad I did as it drew me. kept me enthralled and delivered everything I was looking for... loveable H/H with sizzling chemistry, great dialogue, romance, intrigue, passion, humor and lots of steam. As I learnt about the lives of Kat and Aiden I was swept away with the writing skills, the action, the suspense, the many secrets, the unfolding danger and drama, their tender, touching and sensual passion…. and of course, the feel good love story between two souls haunted by their past.
Aiden is a mouthwatering ex MMA Fighter and he's strong, sexy, tattooed and pierced but guilt from a long ago trauma stops him from loving anyone. Kat is mentally scarred but strong willed she's a survivor of teenage abuse, is hiding from her past, her family and some real bad guys and isn't looking for any type of relationship. They work alongside each other and tension builds as the undeniable sexual chemistry starts to sizzle so when they are forced together they can no longer put out the scorching flames of desire. As Aiden learns of Kat's heartbreaking past it brings out his patient, protective, caring and thoughtful side and together they transform each other, fight for one-another and, through danger and pain, comes healing, character growth, joy, family & friend reunions….. and love.
Worth a credit? Hell YEAH - this is book 3 in GLM's Fighting For Love series but, while this could easily be a stand-alone listen, there are characters mentioned and a continuation of a pre-described plot, which makes me wish I had listened to books 1 & 2 first - however they're now safely in My Basket.
He was a God so what did he need from a mere Mortal? Nothing.... well that's what drool-worthy Sun God Kinich thought but fate and his loving, but slightly mad Sister, had other plans. The offer of $1 million to be a Surrogate was so tempting to Penelope who's got a very sick Mother and draining finances so she meets Kinich to discuss things but a drugged drink and a night of sex leaves them both with much more than regrets over ever opening the now empty can of worms.
It's a charming, funny, entertaining, sexy, emotional listen as two loveable characters find themselves unwilling pawns in an action-packed supernatural War game that has unexpected, devastating twists and heartbreaking consequences. The supernatural world-building descriptions and characters are very well written and the plight that Penelope finds herself in is intense as she unwillingly becomes the Leader of 14 weird Gods. Witty one-liners, funny internal dialogue, a doomed tragic love affair, hot sex, an Apocalypse and a cast of fantastical characters makes this an essential non-stop listen.
Worth a credit? YES but with missing characters, a crisis, the end of the world still looming and a jaw dropping Wh..Wh..WHAT? of a cliffhanger this is far from a nicely wrapped-up HEA ending which has left me simply DESPERATE for the next book.
As I sat staring at a blinking cursor waiting for some sort of inspiration to strike so I could write this review I just didn't know where to begin..... should it be the exciting, acton-packed, emotional roller coaster plot with it's twists and turns, or perhaps the H/H's tortured pain filled minds, maybe the array of interesting, gifted and hot ex Navy Seals (now sexy Special Ops Alpha Shape-shifters with Psy abilities). Or should it be the sudden claiming and the mate-bond which results in a touching, tender, passionate romance with hot sex. Then there were the sub plots, the evil Rogue Vampires, the shocking revelations and lots of heartbreaking drama which were gripping, raw, tragic, intense and had some NO NO NO, WT*, HOLY SH*T and OMG moments. Where oh where to start? or maybe just finish with.....
Bottom line.... great paranormal world-building, enjoyable, entertaining and captivating story which has both humor and tragedy, a wealth of secondary characters, a loveable damaged Hero and a Heroine seeking revenge and some hot n heavy sex.
Worth a credit? YES and a great addition to an awesome PNR series and hopefully JD Tyler is busy writing more thrilling books about the Alpha Pack heroes.
Easygoing bad mouthed Trip is gorgeous, sexy, tattooed and is the Drummer in B.F. but he's had his heart broken once so now he's strictly a love em and leave em happy type of guy but when he smooches up to Holly on the dance floor she leaves a long lasting impression on his drunken mind.
This isn't set around the band, the rock star hype or the gigs and it's a refreshing change - instead it's set in Arizona where unrecognised Trip is pretending to be just a Representative of a rich musician wanting to invest in Holly's Father's X Track Motor-cross business. However, he never planned on being hit with sizzling chemistry, jealousy, frustration, lust, passion, mind blowing sex, friendship..... and love. There's also other's secrets that he must keep and his own secrets he's not ready to share but, as we all know from these books, secrets will always find their way out. Holly brings with her a scumbag ex boyfriend that throws some punches, a loving, loyal and supportive gay best friend and separated parents who are holding more devastating secrets.
I didn't like the dual narration and Nelson Hobbs' narration from Trip's POV was sometimes hard to follow as I couldn't work out which characters were talking and was Trip just thinking or actually speaking.
Worth a credit? It was a very enjoyable refreshing addition to the series as we share in the love story of another band member who slowly, tenderly and touchingly meets and helplessly falls hard for his destined mate. So YES a very creditworthy addition to my library but with one small complaint about the series - I don't like the way that all these books are followed with costly .5 Novella's instead of either continuing the stories within the books or charge a much more acceptable price for a 2 or 3 hr listen.
I want to thank Ms Cole for her gifted imagination, her many hours of work, her thought filled days, maybe sleepless nights conjuring up this exciting, riveting and emotional adventure and say that every lost hour, every minute and every second was so worth it as you've brought yet another spellbinding addition to the Immortals After Dark series. I don't mind my bloodshot eyes or my fatigue because you gave me a listen that I just couldn't, and wouldn't, break from until my bedroom grew light and the birds began to welcome a new day.
You gave me a proud but lonely, tortured and tormented Demon that I sympathised with, cherished and hoped he got his much deserved HEA, a Witch that first betrayed him but was loyal and loving in the end and a suspense filled plot that was filled with action, heartache, passion, drama, witty dialogue, snappy one-liners and humor, sizzling sexual chemistry, hot sex and paranormal beings that were gruesome, bloodthirsty, gifted, weird and wonderful. Then you teamed all that with the much loved characters from previous books and added new ones that thrilled, chilled and totally entertained me.
The final cherry on top was to have it read by the Maestro himself as Robert Petkoff's many accents enriched an already bulging story and breathed life and soul into it's many characters.
Worth a credit? It would be a definite thumbs up YES but this was under $10 so I bought it, saving my credit for another time.
If you haven't heard of this wonderful new Sci-Fi series before about the dominant sexy Alpha Sky Warriors, their overwhelming driving need and the lengths they each take to claim a mate and have a family of their own, then I suggest you quickly start. However, start with book 1 then follow it with book 2 as you'll be missing the all important and interesting who, what and why layers to the Harcos Sky Warrior's mentality and lives which helps you to understand these gentle giants of the skies. Also there's the ever building sub plot about the Rebel's uprising which has been simmering in the background but, in this 3rd book, they now become a real threat to all on board the Spaceship Valiant.
Back to this book.... Dizzy's life is threatened and her Father has put her in the Lottery and she wants out of her current life so she has every intention of being grabbed but she sees one of the huge Sky Warrior staring eagerly at her and he makes her wonder if she's doing the right thing. From the start Venom, a tattooed, pierced, badass Captain only had eyes for one woman but his 'Grab' didn't quite go as planned and for a little while he thought he was going to lose everything but in a touching scene Dizzy comes to his rescue and together they sealed her future. However, unknowingly Venom has grabbed much more than he bargained for when he tied his collar around Dizzy's neck.
The well-written, enjoyable and entertaining plot has many surprises in store for the couple but first they must learn to trust each other which, thankfully, comes naturally to them both as they are eager to make their 'marriage' work. This partly involves teaching Dizzy all about sex, ropes and bondage and Venom's tender and touching approach pays off when she happily complies with all his demands. But duty calls for Venom and secrets, surprises and shocks await Dizzy and she is forced, once again, to come to Venom's rescue. There are the familiar likeable/loveable/nasty characters from the previous books but various new characters have now joined the story which has enriched the plot.
Worth a credit? So far there are two aspects to each book in this series - the romance between the Sky Warriors and their grabbed wives which are always very sexually charged and erotic but sweet, romantic, touching and tender too. Then there's the building threat of the Terrorist Rebels which is quickly picking up speed and they're bringing death, destruction, hostage situations, fighting and fresh drama to the tense and, as yet, unknown outcome. So you certainly get lots of 'bangs' for your bucks (in every form) which makes this, IMHO, a very creditworthy listen.
If you're in the mood for something different, as I was, then this hot futuristic space series might be a nice change for you. They're all about very sexy, very Alpha Sky Warriors from Planet Harcos who earn, through hard work, points which enable them (if they want to) to enter the 'Grab' on Planets that they are policing in order to grab a wife. The 18-30 yr old females are chosen from a Lottery (some want to be picked some don't) and they have to run through a pre-determined route to get to a safe zone then they can get transported off to a nicer Colony. But the 7 ft. Sky Warriors give chaise and try to grab themselves a wife..... willing or not and then take them back to their Space Ship.
Naya has had a rough life so she entered the Lottery with her friend, yes both had heard the stories about the cruel Warriors, but they were determined to win and get to another Colony however she was grabbed by Menace. Unlike the preconceived reputation he is thoughtful, respectful, caring and kind but he is also a Dom and likes to play games in his 'playroom' which Naya finds she likes very much and very quickly they form a close bond. However, she has secrets that are found out which has a heartbreaking effect on their relationship and forces her to confront vicious enemies from her past with devastating consequences.
This was well-written, romantic, exciting, it has BDSM/voyeurism/role play ménage erotica, a tender love story, a sub-plot with a few evil villains in it, other likeable characters and the multi-layered world of the Sky Warriors are added to so you get a deeper understanding of their lives, their passions and their hopes and dreams for the future.
Worth a credit? If you're looking for a very enjoyable Sci-Fi romance with a Spaceship full of hot, sexy, tattooed Alphas then look no further. I'm loving this series so YES very creditworthy and I'm off to listen to book 3.
Firstly, this is a spin-off series telling the tales of the children of the couples from The Scoundrels of St. James series but you don't need to have listen to them first however, if you have, then those characters will be familiar to you as they are mentioned in this new series. This book tells of the bitter-sweet romance of Grace's unrequited hopeless love for Lovington now a tortured Rake whose heart is beating but is dead over the death of his wife and daughter 2 yrs previously. Grace will only marry for love and enlists his help in finding it from one of her many suitors and, despite her feelings for him, she tries. But deep down Grace is aware that she's fighting a loosing battle because she loves only him but she realizes too that he could never love again.
It isn't a happy feel-good romance, although there were funny parts, because of the secret Grace held and Lovington's constant pain of his loss but slowly, through their tormented journey, life returns to his once dead heart. There's tragedy, but also a tender all consuming slow build-up of passion, sex and, as danger looms, love. Strong yet vulnerable H/H and it's their character development, compassion unwillingness to let go of each other that makes this a powerful love story.
Worth a credit? This was an enjoyable but emotional listen and, despite the fact that it dragged a bit and was predictable, it's still creditworthy. I'll follow the series but hope that the narrator is changed for the next one as her male/female voices were virtually the same which was a shame because, in the hands of a more skilful narrator, this would have easily earned another star.
